>> welcome back to "new day." time for our political gut check. new this morning, government officials tell the "wall street journal" the nsa was tapping the phones of 35 world leaders. officials say the white house ordered an end to the program once it became known and also the president wasn't briefed. the president didn't foe about these tasks. cnn senior political analyst and editorial journal ron brown seen here to break it down for us. ron, it seems another day, another intelligence leak continues to come out. it's really plaguing the administration at this point. more and more of these intelligence leaks. what do you think the fallout is? maybe it's hard to say at this point because we're in the middle of it. >> no, look, it's a mess. i think that's clear. it's going to continue to be a mess as it goes forward. first of all, edward snowden is probably passing daniel elsberg and the pentagon papers as the consequential leak of classification in modern
3:24am
american history. look, this is something, you you don't know whether they're telling the truth or not telling the truth. you don't know if it's worth it for the president if he is not aware this was going on or he was aware and allowed it to continue. right now they are saying, of course, he was not briefed. angela merkel, the german chancellor has been furious, growing up in a society where there was a tremendous amount of under surveillance, obviously, a personal issue for her as well. look, it will be a diplomatic. i talked to someone last night in the administration. it is a mess everywhere this is arising. >> does the administration think at some point. the president needs to speak out about this inherently? it's a difficult thing to do. with so much coming out publicly, i don't know, is it reaching a tipping point? >> you know, they have as the "wall street journal" story notes this morning, they have an extensive review process of the nsa procedures under way. obviously, we have a domestic
3:25am
issue as well as a foreign issue in the wake of the snowden revelation. i think at some point, the president has talked about a rebalancing between security and personal liberty, you know, trying to move away from a permanent war time footing post-9-11. i think at some point he's going to have to address this more directly for both audiences. certainly, this review they have under way seems like the venue to do that. >> it looks like a good pointment back here at home, this week, secretary intelliious will be testifying about the fiasco and rollout of obama care. we now have administration word that they don't think it will be fully fixed until the end of november and another crash last night. what kind of week is this going to be for them? >> you know, it is look this is just astonishing a failure. you know, the president understood in his second term he was unlikely to get much done legislatively with the republican congress and the key to higgs legacy was making this
3:26am
work, probably the most consequential expansion of their safety net since medicare and medicaid. by all indication, he was monitoring this process and yet we have had just this spectacular failure. whether how much this ultimately affects the long term viability of the program the experience in massachusetts, which is the model is signup was very much back loaded towards the end toward the deadline. so if they get this together, eventually, they can put it back on track. you know, the real risk here is when the website doesn't work, the people who will find their way through it, sit there for hours and hours are people who are sick who need insurance badly. the problem is the system needs a lot of young healthy people for whom this may be kind of less urgent to sit and fight your way through f. you don't get them to seen up the risk pool becomes unbalanced. premiums go up next year t. whole thing downward spirals. stay there to get this done.
3:27am
it is not a political problem. it is a substantive problem to the core work of the program. >> it makes you wonder, what kind of good, what kind of health can secretary intelliious offer to testify today? a lot opolitical theatre and wanting to roast her. >> you would say in a different political environment someone is going to have to take the blame for this and the secretary would be the most likely person. the problem is, if the president replaced her in this environment, how difficult would it be to get anyone confirmed through the senate, vir cull certainty of republican filibuster, an opportunity to use this as kind of a way to lever annual more concessions from the administration. i think that is probably in the back of their mind. what you are seeing is understandably a lot of democrats nervous about the sign-up period, in particular, and whether it has to be extended. if people can't get through the website to boy the insurance, the idea of finding them, even though it's a fairly individual find for not having it becomes
3:28am
absurd. >> thanks, so much. all eyes will be on wednesday when the secretary does testify. that's for sure. let's go over to mikaela for all the stories making headlines right now. >> good morning to you at home, a somber day, massachusetts, a funeral mass will be held for colleen ritzer, the massachusetts teacher allegedly killed by a student. hundreds lining the streets in andover sunday to attend the wake for the 24 hour-year-old teacher. police say she was killed inside a school bathroom before her body was dumped on tuesday. 14-year-old chill lip chisholm has pleaded not guilty. sunday, in a separate car bombing targeting soldiers in the northern city of mosul. all told, at least 60 people were killed. a mother and her children stabbed in her brooke len apartment. the children range in age from 1 to 9-years-old.
3:29am
they arrest the cousin of the father t. suspect is an immigrant from china. police say he had been staying with the victims. more trouble for chris brown. he and his body guard charged with felony assault in washington for allegedly trying to punch a man who tried to take a picture with the singer. brown is on probation for domestic violence. any arrest could be considered a violation, which could pine jail time. the victim was treated for a bruised jaw and swollen face. a foods recall to tell you about this morning, all because of a possible listeria contamination. it involves taylor farms broccoli salad and law is. the -- and slaw. they were sold in connecticut, delaware, maryland, new jersey, new york and vermont. so far, for the reports of anyone getting sick. i was just thinking of that, reviseing my plan. >> i think so. >> a different dressing is the key, i guess.
3:30am
>> right. until we find out more. we always put this news out. >> better to be safe than sorry. >> we'll tell you as well. coming up on "new day. request itself the destruction, what was that? was at this time light call? it cost the sox the game saturday night. we'll tell you about it. >> ahead, remembering the ledge endary rocker and founding member of the velvet underground, how did his songs change music forever? lots to talk about. i'm tony siragusa and i'm training guys who leak a little,

rain. boston looking at a temperature of 61 degrees. 7:00 central. i keep saying earlier, do we go with burman here? do we want them to win? >> it's right here. >> they can look you in the eyes. >> you don't know why it's a question either. >> of course, are you on my side. they're on those sides. there are no sides, there is only controversy. why this year's world series? it's good. two power houses playing well. games ending with shocking endings that spark controversy. a witness last night. a kickoff at 1st base to end the game. did the guy make the tackle? i don't know, we'll talk about it. it is this play from saturday that will be debated for years to come. the third baseman, obstructing the runner. the rulebook says, yes, cost the sox the game. was it right? let's bring in rachel nichols the host of unguarded wit, raven el nichols. "early start" anchor, not john
3:36am
berman the die hard red sox fan, hello to both of you. let's begin with last night. we'll do it in the order of occurrence. do you think you made the tag at first? >> i think it's the first world series game to end an obstruction call t. best part about that is you have no idea what will happen to me. >> notice my body language is not changing? down you made the tag? >> i think it's okay. >> i think no one thinks he made the tag. >> it's a controversy. >> you are asking the wrong question. >> you would co it be the uninitiated? maybe i don't watch major leak baseball all the time. why is the call from saturday to controversial? >> because intention is not the issue. he said he didn't mean to do it. >> that doesn't matter. it's in the rulebook. the reason why people are so upset about that is that he fell making the play. so people said, what was he supposed to do? he was going for the ball.
3:37am
then he was in the way. so the question is, what was he supposed to do with himself? and the answer is, it doesn't matter. he got in the way. people say he needs to change the rules. the umpires did follow the rules. >> i can speak on behalf of the outrage. >> you see the lighting on that. you were spoking about an issue that does not matter. it has no effect. being in the pace pack, it didn't matter. he was there. the minute the ball went by him there, he was obstructing the runner and the man scored. >> i'm saying if he's going to play the victim the way fans like to play the guy had his legs up from the fact is honus is on him to get out of the way. >> yes. >> but there was no way to get out of the way. it was the correct ball. it is a rule without nuance. they definitely made the right call. >> it's like the tough rule. put as fans, football fans. we all remember, the put as advance to the playoffs in 2001 against the raiders, tom brady,
3:38am
they called it not a fumble. the reves made the right call then, just like they made the call saturday night t. rule may not cover everything and change the yauch roll. they called to determie a game. that's what makes something a controversy. >> here's the question. in the nba, you may notice towards the end of every nba finals game, travel doesn't exist. the idea is just one play. nobody wants if game decided by a referee. there is a move here of saying, hey, how come these umpires are deciding the game. certainly in game three. the answer is in baseball, it's a much different culture. everything is regulated. every secretary general -- >> two things, saturday night a game is never ended that way in a world series. and another thing, though, those were two big play, listen, this is the way it is, there were two plays at the end of those games that were absolutely
3:39am
historically ethically bad decisions by players. home plate. never made the three to third. >> such a bad move. >> colton long getting picked off 1st base. >> that runner doesn't matter. >> i want you to zoom in on the john berman. i never seen it. i'm concerned we might need to get botox in there. are you wearing it on your face. >> there is no sleep. >> it's a great series. >> this conversation obstructs the point that there is some great stuff happening. before the controversial ending of last night's game, you had a great hero moment. johnny gomes, who was not supposed to be there. he wasn't even supposed to be playing. 90 minutes before the game finds out that another player is injured. he's going to be able to start. hoo tess guy his manager always says, what john if i gives us is way beyond the numbers. usually, he doesn't give us numbers. last night, they were giving us
3:40am
numbers. he hit this amazing home run. just before that, all of the players on the field have come and done a presentation about standing up to cancer. they held cars saying who they were standing up to cancer before. he held up the name of his coaches along with a young girl from massachusetts. he said it inspired me. how much do you love that story in come on? >> guaranteed, everybody will be watching this game. >> you see it in the ratings. the ratings are going up. you can watch. >> thanks,. >> i'm concerned, generally. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> good luck. big game tonight, j.b. i can't wait to tweet you. be sure to catch rachel's show unguarded with raven el nichols friday nights 10:30 p.m. eastern time. coming up next on "new day," he changed music forever, setting the stage for rock and punk for generations to come. it was a nod to our

4:04am
counterproliferation. those priorities are well known. specific targets, however, angela merkel's cell phone are not the sort of thing to discuss with the president of the united states. on the other hand, what he gets each morning is finished intelligence, that is a narrative that's written for him. it doesn't tell him specifically where the collection came from. some of it is sort of self-evident. >> on the flipside, would it be not an intelligence gathering going on. they say this is the price of business. the u.s. is gathering the same type of under surveillance that other countries are doing at this time. >> that's right. let ask ourselves when we hear the germans and others out raged, short of shocked this is going on. you don't hear them saying they're not doing precisely the same thing to visiting dignitaries and heads of state when they're in germany or around the world if they have the opportunity. so this is sort of the cost of

what happens and then we may revoke his license, then he's got section as well. texas says, we will revoke your license, he will fight that, too. that was an early revocation, because my appellate process hasn't gone through to its end, i think we've taken informal polls taken. some say, isn't this what rehabilitation is about in this man served his time. why doesn't he have the ability to go back and serve his time. then there are other folks saying, no, no, no, you sort of. if you killed somebody using your medical license, why do you get the right to practice again? so i'm not sure. i don't know which way it's going to go. people are split 50-50 on it. >> he's out of prison now. does he completely have legal troubles other than when we got this license? >> probably. i think it's about whether or not he will be able to practice
4:30am
medicine again. >> when we issue a sentence what do we have? >> we do. we want to talk about chris brown. he can't get away from trouble. he has another serious issue, he and a body guard facing trouble. a felony assault. how serious is that? does it normally carry jail time or no? >> i will tell you, we are in my neck of the woods, this happened in d.c. when you commit a crime in d.c., you are facing federal prosecutors. d.c. is not a state. it's a district. so federal prosecutors try local crimes as well. he is up against i think some of the best in the business. of course, he also has my good frank mark gerigos, fantastic attorney. i'm sure he will get local council in d.c. very good council. but in d.c., it's really very serious. >> it's all pro barrel. >> if d.c., there could be a significant time. but she on probation. so i think the argument really needs to be, wow, you know, is
4:31am
that now a violation of his probation? how could it not be? >> i think. so i think so. are you right, chris, how could it not be? he is arrested. he is not supposed to be in any sort of trouble. >> what does that mean? >> basically the california court can say, you can screwing up, i will yank your probation. that is the seriousness. not only could he face jail time in d.c., he could get his probation yanked in los angeles. ly tell you, i think my good friend mark gerigos has an uphill battle. >> how does celebrity play into all this. >> i don't think we would be talking about it if this weren't chris brown. right. i got the alert. early sunday morning, chris brown in trouble again, because there was all that media attention on that issue with rehahn na, we saw the pictures of her face badly beaten. i think society has said, enough is enough. you have an anger management problem. you are violent and you've got
4:32am
to pay. >> you look at some of the troubles following them already this year. >> yes. >> so it's not just probation. it's not just this thing that happened over the weekend, you look back with the run-ins, likely, that i will take all of that. how much time could he potentially face? >> you know what, i haven't seen the information in terms of what's going on in d.c. we are talking felony assault. >> it's significant. i can't underestimate for everyone how significant and important this is and i'm just surprised. i mean, chris brown, come on. come on. >> and the body guard there. >> come on. you know. it's a shame. sonny, awesome. thank you for laying insight. we appreciate it. coming up next on "new day," the girls accused of bullying a florida girl who later committed suicide, they are getting their day in court. the attorney for one of them will be joining us next. >> are you ready to be inspired? it's monday, you are looking for

4:37am
down to almost 10 degrees below normal tuesday and wednesday, feels good in the northeast. in the southeast, what a difference, you start off so chilly. now you have done more than rebound. you seen temperatures go to above normal. atlanta 76. average should be 69 degrees. a beautiful weather in the southeast, eventually, that will spread into the most by the middle of the week a. difference in pattern changes. that going to be the change you may have heard, there is some snow out there. a lot of it. in montana today, as much as 18 inches of snow is possible. those peak elevations went through we'llge. even the peaks in california could see a dusting overnight a. big story there, a light rain kicking through the region. what does it matter? this system will make it across the country. we are looking for severe weather through kansas. be i the end of the weekend, we will be looking at the mid-west through texas, some heavy rain. even with wind out there. eventually into the northeast. the big thing i forgot to ask is

what cuomo was dressed as for halloween. the thing is, i have no idea. so, chris, please help us in here. >> i have no idea who he is. he must have impressive deltoids. no idea who that is. >> thank you, chris. >> no, thank you, indra. the counterattack will be waiting. we want to update you on a story we having following from the beginning. 12-year-old rebecca secretary generalwick, you remember here, she committed suicide we believe after months of relentless bullying. one of the girls accused of driving her to it as a criminal attorney jose baez. he is representing roman. you will remember, baez defended casey anthony in court. he joins us is morning. counsellor, thank you for taking the opportunity. >> good morning, chris. that uchg for having me. >> jose, you said these accusations should be properly on the other girl involved, not
4:39am
on your client. what are you privy to that's not public that gives you that confidence? >> well, i don't really point the finger here at anyone. what i'm saying is that these are two separate girls, that their actions are completely different and they should be taken that way, but that's not what's being, that's not xa exactly is happening here. they're being bundled together and all of the statements and the actual bullying that has been released be i the sheriff in this case were done by the other co-defendant. the older girl. my client, law enforcement has yet to show one specific, just one specific instance of cyber bullying and that may be, because there aren't any. >> all right, now the hedge on that, according to sheriff, listen, jose, i have been listening to what you are saying. this is terrible. we are talking about kids, one of them is dead. these are very young people. we also understand the enormity of the problem.
4:40am
that's why we have to have the analysis of the case like any other in some respects. in one way as you say. >> absolutely. >> there is no instance of cyber bullying. >> true. >> that we heard from prosecutors involving your client. however the sheriff says your client is the one in the fight that may have been provoked by the other girl in this situation, that may have been something that greatly hurt the victim in this situation. are you saying that your client is not the girl who was in that fight, that that didn't happen? >> no, we're not don'ting that at all. there was a fight over almost a year ago prior to a year prior to her death. to be able to tie a school yard fight into the reason why someone committed suicide a 84 prior, i just find as a tremendous stretch. we have to remember, these are kids in middle school, who there are middle school fights all the time and to point that out and to pull that out and say, you are now a 12-year-old responsible for the death of your former friend, i think
4:41am
that's a pretty heavy burden for a 12-year-old child to carry. i have yet to see the connection between the two. >> well, now, to use this idea, something that shows the burden that this child is carrying as well as something that indicates the burn of the sheriff, the department reload a facebook chat involving your client entitled "my secrets." she talks of hating herself. i feel rebecca is dead because of me. if only i can say i'm sorry. what down that makes in terms of the case and is she okay? is she getting help? is her family around her? >> to answer your sec question first, yes, i am immediately upon coming on borksd i had her evaluated by a forensic psychiatrist. we're in the process of getting her treatment. he feels absolutely horrible for what happened to rebecca. you know, this is a child who has been remorseful, that she ever had any disagreements with
4:42am
her, feels horrible for having a fight with her a 84 prior and, you know, those statements that were released by the sheriff, those are evidence of a grieving child, someone who feels horrible and feels absolutely responsible, doesn't show any aggravated stalking and an intent to cause significant harm to another individual. this is somebody who feels horrible that a friend of hers died. >> well, then, jose, how do you explain the vehements, the certainty of the sheriff who says, this is a case of bullying, this is a case of bullying gone too far. this is a kies of bullying gone too far that resulted in another child's death. it has to stop. and it stops here. >> you know, i can't step in his views and explain his motivations behind it. all i can do is lock at the evidence that's been submitted. i still have yet to see a connection between the two. she -- this rebecca was speccing
4:43am
to a boy at the time. i know there are romantic rivals that have to do with the other girl and i don't know if this is a situation that happened over a boy or is this a situation that happened with the co-defendant? the evidence is still not been turned over completely to us. but i think what's been submitted so far, including the sworn arrest affidavit, there is absolutely really no connection other than a remorseful child that ties my client specifically to the death of rebecca secretary generalweekend. >> you know the sheriff couldn't disagree with you more. he says you are doing what a defense council does. are you denying everything. that's your job. not here, there are sensitivities involved. he pointed to you, saying my client is being bullied by thesome. do you regret that choice of words given a child was lost to bullying, given how serious it is? >> no, i take issue with a
4:44am
proefrs after makening an arrest, going out and making the media rounds. law enforcement's job is to simply make an, investigate crimes and make an arrest and turn it over to the pros skourts. this sheriff has decided to take it upon himself to create a crusade and become a public relations machine, for which he is not. everything that he is doing is outside of the scope of his role as a law enforcement officer and to place that burden on a 12-year-old child to parade her mugshot in front of national television and to release her name, all of this is going to cause permanent damage to this girl's development, who as you have mentioned already was emotionally vulnerable, had thoughts of suicide, had other abecause issues. so i men, this is an extroemly vulnerable job for which he knows. he knows this girl's condition and is still going out there parading her as if she is public enemy number one.
4:45am
i think that is bullying for itself. i will not stand for it. >> let's go to the last question. let's say you are right in terms of her emotional state. she is fragile, j you a child, what about her parents, if it is stabbed exile or otherwise, they now there was bullying going on. it went too far. now a kid is dead. do you understand that there is now a push from the sheriff and others that they should be charged? your thoughts on that? >> taking it no that fantasy land question and say figure they knew and all of these ifs, i would say, yes, i think in locking at cyberbullying, there are responsibilities that parents should take. let's not be mistaken, i heard earlier on your show, on the drive in here that, two-year-olds are now taking tablets and children are now taking electronic devices to a whole new level. first of all, this child, you
4:46am
know, this choild was your normal average wild who was an a and b student, good if school, from kivendergarten all the way to 7th grade, got nothing but as and bs. so i think they were doing something right. you know, they're not perfect parents, but they were certainly doing something right and iffing willing at those specific instances, i think that's quite a leap in this scenario. in this scenario. now, certainly, there are other parents that require that should be held responsible for what their children are doing online, but not in this case. >> a quick take. how do you feel about the charges against the other child involved, given the facebook message how she didn't care what had happened, the parents saying they knew, it seems like they let some things go. you feel more comfortable with those charges? >> well, you know, some of the evidence has still not come out yet. i have seen one or two posts that seem, that don't seem
4:47am
right. they, obviously, are in extremely more taste. whether that rises to the level oof a criminal charge, a felony charge, i don't know. i'd have to wait until i saw more of the evidence. >> jose baez, it's early in the process, it stirs up a lot of feelings. we have to find solution. thank you for coming on "new day." >> absolutely, thank you, chris. >> coming up next on "new day," the sensational case of a utah doctor on trial for murdering his wife. his mistress is expected to return. we are live on that case. also a history-making performance and a lesson for everyone. you are not your limitation. meet the woman that didn't let brown stop her from what could be the hardest break in the world. #%tia[

oh, boy, welcome back. if monday's starting a little slow we have a pickup for you, we'll get into this inspiring story about a woman who defied all the odds, finished the most difficult ironman race, the kona race, without her legs. gts' the ultimate good stuff. before we head over it's a couchy story. >> every day we're working to be a better company and to keep our commitments and we made a big commitment to america, bp supports nearly 250,000 jobs here, through all of our energy operations, we invest more in the u.s. than any other place in the world. in fact, we've invested over $55 billion here in the last five
4:52am
years making bp america's largest energy investor. our commitment has never been stronger. >> the story makes much more sense now that we're here at the couch. the good stuff is about people who go beyond for others and this in a different way, amanda's example will help all of us. she is the first female paraathlete to officially complete the ironman world championship in kona, hawaii, the most difficult endurance race you could imagine. the fittest most practiced athletes routinely fail to finish. imagine finishing it without the use of your legs. she joined us, finisher's medal in tow. i asked her if she grasped how amazing this accomplishment is? >> i'm amazed to be here actually and speak with you about my experience. >> did you know, yes, i'm going to get there or was there a little bit of a fantasy until it
4:53am
happened? >> well my journey didn't start this year. last year i went to kona, i started, but i got pulled off the bike course because i didn't make it in time. >> let me be the whisperer you never listened to your entire life, you've done enough, you're not supposed to finish something like that anyway, it's amazing you got this far. what do you do when you hear that whisper? >> i think the message is just to focus on the now and that's what i did throughout this race. i just focused on every moment, the next stroke, the next push on the hand cycle to the next push on the wheelchair. all i cared about was finishing. >> you swim over two meals. >> yes, 2.4 miles. >> and you have to bike 112 on the hand bike. >> yes. >> then you have to do a marathon in the wheelchair. >> yes. >> how many hours of work? >> during the race? it took me 14 hours and 40 minutes. >> 14 hours of full time all-out?
4:54am
>> yes. >> what was it in your life that gave you a sense of saying i am not my challenges? i am not just what my limitations are? where do you get that? >> i don't think it's necessarily triathlete that i got that from. i think just having great parents. my parents adopted me when i was a baby, from india, and they also have two children of their own and they adopted my brother from korea, and so they just taught me from an early age that i can be who i want to be. i can be independent. i had to do the same thing my siblings had to do. >> you had polio and that led to paralysis and you wound up being up for adoption and got adopted by this american family. >> yes. >> just alone in that it's. an amazing back story of finding a family and opportunity that maybe you wouldn't have had otherwise. >> definitely pi. think thousands of children are, they die every year from
4:55am
preventable diseases. in all honest ll lly i wouldn't here today if i hadn't been adopted. surviving in india with polio is very slim. >> you started off in india with polio and paralysis and you wind up the first ever in your category to finish the kona ironman. >> yes. >> i don't think you're sufficiently impressed. >> i don't know if it's about being sufficiently impressed. i think it just hadn't totally quite hit me yet. >> i mean what else is there exactly? what else? >> i mean you're a triathlete, too. we're just sort of hardwired to try to improve upon our last performance, and i think while this may sound boring, after having had the experience last week i started thinking about okay what are the things i could have changed or what could i do better, and what could i do to improve my time. >> what do you want people to take from your success? >> everyone has their first day
4:56am
in anything and it's just about like setting that goal, making a plan, working hard, having that dedication to want to work that hard to achieve it, because that finish line, no matter what it is, it could be a work project or making dinner for your family, whatever the case may be, it's worth it. >> i love minda, i love her family, oh my goodness. >> troo are you kidding me? true testament to what she's about. she says her accomplishments are not about her, you can find out how she was helped and help other paraathletes like her compete with their own dreams. >> remarkable journey from india to here. it really does make you wonder what is next for her. clearly the answer is the sky is the limit. >> not sufficiently impressed. >> she's not impressed with her arms. you see the size of the biaccepts on hbiceps

"the wall street journal" reports this morning that the
5:02am
u.s. was eavesdropping on dozens of world leaders, including german chancellor angela merkel. "the journal" says president obama was unaware for years. chief national security correspondent jim sciutto is in washington. good morning, jim. >> good morning, chris. the real question is what did the president know, to what extent and when did it know it? "wall street journal" reporting he was unaware inle this summer. german newspaper saying he knew back in 2010. the white house is reviewing the policy at the direction of the president. to do that the president formed two new groups, his review group on intelligence and communications technology, that's going to look at getting the balance right between privacy concerns and security concerns, a second group going to focus right in on civil liberties, privacy and civil liberties oversight board to give some of the oversight many of the critics in the surveillance was saying they were lacking.
5:03am
every day there's another revelation about spying including some of our closest allies. the newest edward snowden documents reveal more spying on america's closest allies. in spain, reports the nsa listened in on 60 million phone calls in a single month and in germany the newspaper reports president obama was briefed by nsa chief keith alexander about spying on angela merkel's calls back in 2010, contradicting white house assurances the president was not aware of the extent of the surveillance. the nsa quickly denied the report telling cnn "general alexander did not discuss with president obama in 2010 an alleged foreign intelligence operation involving german chancellor merkel nor has he ever discussed alleged operations involving chancellor merkel." a clear step beyond the white house's willingness up to now to deny president and future monit monitoring. >> i can tell you the president assured the chancellor that the united states is not monitoring
5:04am
and will not monitor the communications of the chancellor. >> reporter: german intelligence officials are expected to come to the u.s. to challenge their american counterparts on the spying after a german official accused the u.s. of "breaking german law on german soil." but mike rogers defended the nsa surveillance sunday saying it was well-regulated and essential to keeping americans and europeans safe from terrorism. >> i think the bigger news story here would be, candy, if the united states intelligence services weren't trying to collect information that would protect u.s. interests both home and abroad. >> the administration still assessing the damage and their focus now on more revelations to come affecting even more sensitive, secret intelligence sharing relationships, kate, and those can cause even more damage than the ones we've seen so far. >> jim, thank you so much for that. let's bring in fareed zakaria to
5:05am
speak with us. you had a great show this weekend on this exact topic. angela merkel says the u.s. relationship with european nations has been severely shaken. do those reports that continue to come out, do you think it really is hurting or threatening a relationship with some of our most basic key allies? >> i think it is. look, some of this is you know, what people are calling the claude reins routine, i'm shocked to discover there's gambling going on, spying. spying is the second oldest profession in the world. two things have changed though. one is just the explosion of technology, big data, the ability to find all this stuff and the u.s.'s incredible cutting edge on that, and the second was 9/11, which in a sense freed all the constraints that we have typically felt about collecting this kind of information, particularly from spies because we felt like we need to know everything about everything, and those two forces have, frankly, made us sloppy about this. we should the be, in my opinion,
5:06am
spying on our closest allies' heads of government. it's one thing to try to find al qaeda sleeper cells in hamburg but you don't need to tap angela merkel's cell phone to figure that out. >> we hear from the administration and members of congress, everyone spies on everyone but does it feel we're in a different place, we're kind of in an uncharted territory here with us? >> it does precisely because of the technologies that make it possible for to you listen to anyone, anywhere at any time and you have to come up with new rules of the road. the united states is often caught in the hypocritical position we're trying to enforce rules for everybody else and we say we can't play by those rules. we have nuclear weapons but we don't want other people to have nuclear weapons. this is a similar thing. the hypocrisy can only happen for so long. you have to be shown you are governed by some set of rules. the administration is doing the right thing, review the policy, get into conversations with the
5:07am
europeans and come up with some rules of the road. of course they realize everyone spies. they spy on us but i think what they're trying to say is look, even within that, you know, let's have some kind of rules of war, if you will. >> i do want to get your take on peter king, congressman from new york. he had said something pretty interesting on "meet the press" this weekend. he said the administration needs to stop apologizing for the nsa's tactics. you said you think the administration is doing the right thing in reviewing the process. how are they handling the fallout? >> not very well. they're being surprisingly inarticulate about it. they should explain the motivation behind this has been things like terrorism, trying to figure out what's going on. one of the reasons they are is they don't want to get into specifics by articulating something they seem to be conforming and from what i've heard the stuff about merkel's cell phone is a little more complicated and the reports are not accurate. whatever. they've got to come up with a way to stand before the world and say look, this is what we, this is what we do in general terms. this is why we do it.
5:08am
even if they're reviewing the policy they need to have some general explanation that makes sense of it. if i were them i would list 20 terrorist attacks that were thwarted as a result of this. >> now france and germany are sending over some senior intelligence officials to washington this week to try to have a no spy accord or work on something. is that going to be enough to try to settle the anger or calm the anger and really the outrage that's going felt around the world for this? >> i think it's a good question. at a governmental level, i think we will be able to settle the anger, but clearly, what is happening here is european politicians are responding to a public that has become quite distrustful of the united states, views it as a kind of 800-pound gorilla that's out of control and we need to think about that. american legitimacy, our influence around the world depends in large part on the idea that we are sort of rural based, we observe some of the kind of rules we want other people to observe and that's why
5:09am
i say we've got to think about, and the rewards here of spying on merkel, you're not learning that much, frankly, that you didn't know, so -- >> not so surprising. >> precisely. the truth of the matter is the level of high policy particularly with democracies most of the time you have a fairly good sense of what the leader is trying to do. if you're trying to find terrorists, that's fine but again i'm not sure how tapping merkel's phone gets you there. >> i think you're presenting many of the questions the administration needs to face now, not later, that's for sure. fareed great to get your perspective. thanks so much. chris? there is a manhunt under way for four escaped inmates, the men are considered armed and dangerous. oklahoma authorities say the mad cap escape from the local jail was something out of "shawshank redemption." george howell is in oklahoma with the latest. good morning, george, what do we know? >> reporter: chris, good morning. what we know those inmates were being held here at this
5:10am
detention center to be shipped off to a state prison but clearly they have plans of their own, secret plan to literally slip through the cracks. des po desperate search is under way for four inmates after their bold escape sunday morning from this detention center in anadarko, oklahoma, about an hour outside oklahoma city, dylan three irons, prime brown, anthony mendonca, trito triton cheadle. >> we don't know. >> reporter: each man sentenced on charges from burglary to meth possession and parole violation. the details of their spectacular jailbreak read like a film scripts, a real life "shawshank redempti redemption." officials say the men busted
5:11am
through a maintenance hatch above the shower in the jail. they crawled through a pipe space beneath the roof where the air continuing and plumbing are located, then they knocked out a cement block to get to another room, that took them directly to an unlocked side door, which they simply pushed open to their freedom. >> we got officers checking all the abandoned vehicles and checking residents where we might know they have relatives living, we're doing that right now. >> reporter: the sheriff gene cain says authorities realized the escape after they were tipped off by someone who saw the inmates walking near the courthouse still wearing their orange jumpsuits. >> we started a head count on our priz ners and we did find we got four missing. >> reporter: the men later ditched the jumpsuits which officers found but there is still no sign of the escapees and that has residents worried. >> i hope they're not at my house when i get back. that's all i hope. you just prepare yourself.
5:12am

it the stumble, the call at the plate out, no, safe. why? obstruction. that's what happened, wound up losing the red sox the game. understandable, sour grapes, how do you feel. mooi mike salk from weei sports radio in boston and randy kariker host of "the fan lane" on 101 espn in st. louis. randy, mike, thank you both for joining us. >> of course. >> thank you very much for having us. we appreciate it. >> help us understand the rivalry here that means even sports commentators like yourselves shutting be sitting in such close proximity. randy give us background. >> we shouldn't and this goes back generations from the cardinals beating the red sox in the '40s in the world series and of course 1967, and we fell in love with our football team in the late '90s, we had the greatest show on turf and lo and behold it's the new england patriots, mike saltz' new
5:21am
england patriots that ended the what we had going with spy gate and the 2004 world series, cardinal fans can handle losing, while they don't like losing world series, it's never their fault but the only time they've been swept in a world series in our lifetime was by the boston red sox in 2004. >> i asked not to be seated so close, chris, it's not on me. >> now we get to the big play. do this for me, mike, take us through what the play was in quick fashion and we'll talk about why it's become a controversy. >> well i'll tell you this play is as bizarre as any you'll see in baseball. it's an unbelievable -- first of all an unbelievable play by dustin pedroia at second play. i don't know what happened to jarred saltalamacchia, decided to throw it, shouldn't have
5:22am
thrown it, the third baseman should have ought caught t didn't catch t lying on the ground and alan craig has to jump over him to go home, even though he is out he's automatically called safe and it's 100% the right call. >> i know both of you guys agree the rule is in the book, it was properly called. here is the question, though, to you, randy, do you make that call at this point of a world series game? it's never about the rule, it's about the application. should this have been called? >> i think there's a couple of things. number one in basketball, and in hockey in playoffs, at the end, officials consciously swallow the whistle, but in this situation number one it was so obvious, if you're a competent umpire you have to call it. umpires don't decide it's the ninth inning of a world series game we'll get away from the spirit and the letter of the law. they just don't do that in
5:23am
baseball. jim joyce said the other night it was instinctive. you can't just decide i'm not going to call this. >> what is the big complaint? we don't want games decided by r refs or umps. >> in other sports you're right, the umpires sometimes think they're the show. they're not the show. it's about the players but you know what? they prevented a run in this case. it would have been a huge mistake to allow st. louis to not win the game when they clearly deserved it. craig would have scored on the play were it not for what will middlebrooks did. it leads you into the next conversation about intent. was he intending to obstruct the runner and the great thing about the rule is it does not matter. it is incumbent on him to get out of the way. how can he possibly get out of the way, lying on the ground. easy answer, catch the ball. as soon as you failed to catch the ball you are at fault, same thing in hockey, it's the same
5:24am
thing in football as well. he hit the receiver across the middle in the head, they say hey i didn't mean to hit him in the head. too bad, it's incumbent on you. >> even though the salks wound up winning the last game when they picked off the guy at first base could this have been a pivotal point, could this be the decision that makes a difference in this series? do you think that the st. louis cardinals, randy l now go on to win because of that play because the momentum shifted in some secret baseball way even if they lost the game the following night? >> no, i'm a big devotee of the adage that momentum in baseball is your next day's starting pitcher. i can't imagine a team beating adam wanewright in the series. if the cardinals are going to win the tipping point is going to come tomorrow night or wednesday night in boston. >> i hate to disappoint a proud new york family like yours but i don't think that will be the turning point. game six is usually the fantastic game in a world

5:31am
>> -- daughter of martin and michelle mack ne michelle macneill. >> we met online. >> reporter: she's the reason martin killed his wife may shell, charges macneill denied. they met in 2004 a few years before michelle died. >> did the relationship become sexual? >> it did. >> when was that? >> i think that was in january of 2006. >> and how often were the two of you having sexual relations? >> it was a very casual thing, it was just whenever we had time and it could be arranged. >> okay. >> and it was i think we probably had sex half the time. i mean sometimes it was just lunch. >> reporter: prosecutors argue macneill forced his wife to get an unwanted facelift and then filled her with a lethal concoction of prescription drugs. after she died he rushed to hire gypsy as a nanny.
5:32am
it became clear there was more to the relationship >> it just was obvious, she's just goo eyed at my dead. >> reporter: the daughter was the first family member to testify against her father. >> he specifically said to me that he was concerned that there would be a police investigation, that he didn't want it to -- anyone to think that he murdered my mother. >> reporter: as for macneill he found it hard to look at his daughter while she struggled through her testimony and this week may not get easier when the jury will hear from his youngest daughter, aida, who was just 6 when her mother died. >> aida was the first one to find her mother in the bathtub and she can talk about exactly what she observed. >> reporter: but she won't exactly testify. instead the jury will see a videotaped interview she gave authorities in september 2008. the judge is allowing for aida to testify through this videotape she did in 2008, she is expected to take the stand
5:33am
and could be cross-examined by the defense. that would be different than anything we've seen before. chris in. >> all of this is, stephanie. thank you for the reporting this morning. we'll talk about the impact of the 12-year-old, what should happen there or not. joey jackson say legal analyst for hln. great to have you here. >> glad to be here, chris. >> we'll talk about aida in a second. first, gypsy willis, the name alone is provocative. the testimony even more so. the prosecutors want to use her to prove one fundamental point and then to bother the jury. >> absolutely. it's about motivation. chris, you never have to establish motivation to establish the case, jurors want to know, inquiring minds want to know, why would you commit this crime and so if you have a mistress there and someone who he's smitten with, certainly that gives him the motivation to get rid of his wife so he could be with her. >> texts on the day of the murder, going to the funeral of the dead wife, horrible stuff. but proof of a crime?
5:34am
n >> not proof of the crime but establishment of motive. not only on the day of the death they're texting and calling each other but the day of the funeral, what does that tell you about engaging in this act, getting rid of his wife so he could be with the one he really loved, gypsy. >> of course you have the daughters, family is the last to come forward against somebody. here you have the older daughter impassioned, the 12-year-old. i get it about the sensitivity but if you're going to let the 12-year-old testify, and she saw the body, why can't she testify to what she saw? >> a couple points here. first of all as to the family members, when you have daughters coming forward, let's talk about the adults first and they're saying my dad's guilty, that's powerful because as you mentioned in your question, they're the last people to come forward. now as to the 6-year-old, then 1-year-ol 12-year-old, that's aida.
5:35am
you have to let her testify but here is what the judge said. the judge said you are so influenced over the years, aida, by your sister, who you're staying with, alexis summers, that she has guarded your testimony, she has made your mind and manipulated you in such a way that it's not going to be not only credible but it's not something we could even allow the jury to hear so we'll hear the videotape and allow the defense to question her on that videotape thereafter. >> savvy conclusion. >> absolutely. i think that look, the judge had to balance the equities here as do you in any trial and the judge said she's important but should we let anything she said after that interview come in, when it was so suggested to her and her mind could have been molded and melded? >> relevance versus prejudice. >> you remember that very well. >> and to not be prejudicial ourselves there was a big point made for the defense as well, where they have the expert witness so vulnerable that he
5:36am
engaged in this act which was the drowning of her, to cause her death. >> so fascinating, one of the reasons this case is so compelling to follow is it all sounds so terrible but as we saw with that e-mail as bad a person as the prosecutors may display mr. macneill to be doesn't mean they can prove he committed the crime. >> absolutely. the defense will have a lot to say about that. >> absolutely. we'll be following it right here

features of life in this city at the moment. it's not just about building sporting venues. they are trying to relaunch this city, this neglected city, as one that is capable and worthy of hosting an olympics. it's ambitious and that is why these are on track to become the most expensive games in olympic history. from a distance, this olympic park looks close to ready, shining new sports venues finished and tested but look closer, there's still so much to do, top of the list, finish the stadium. it's not hosting any sport but it will be the stage for the opening ceremony. the people directing that spectacle have demanded big changes to the design, including a roof. russia is not famous for its efficiency so delivering all this on time will be a statement to the world. it's one reason why president vladimir putin is taking such a personal interest. dimitri grigori managing the speed skating arena and says putin's regular visits and direct oversight have made a big
5:42am
difference. >> i'm not going to say why, but it has, believe me. >> reporter: you're seeing things happen? >> yes. >> reporter: sochi's other challenge, overhauling the city's soviet era infrastructure. the skyline is a mess of cranes and partially completed buildings, many of them much needed hotels and then there's the traffic,' appalling. sochi's mayor, anatoli pakamov is firmly on team putin and says somehow it will all be fixed in three months. security is an especially big concern at these games because russia's islamic terrorists have promised to disrupt them and organizers can't even rely on mother nature to deliver the white stuff. it's subtropical here so snowfall is patchy. that's why they're storing vast amounts of last season's snow, just in case. the estimated cost, $50 billion and counting, for all the delays and cost overruns, don't underestimate the power of the
5:43am
putin factor. the expectation here is that somehow this will all come together, largely because the president is determined to make a statement to the world about the greatness of modern russia, regardless of the cost. back to you, chris. >> the power of the putin. thank you for that, appreciate it this morning. the cnn film "blackfish" is causing the heated debate over the keeping of killing whales in captivity. martin savidge is at the cnn center with more. >> good morning to you, chris. ever since cnn aired "blackfish" thousands have tweeted and signed online petitions to free killer whales in captivity. the film really has stirred controversy and its conjecture that the whales are would to intelligent to keep in captivity. take a listen. the cnn film "blackfish" is taking social media by storm. on facebook and twitter, thousands debate the ethics of keeping killer whales in captivity at aquariums in marine
5:44am
parks. many say they were stunned by the movie's lgs that mistreatment of some killer whales also known as orcas, may have led to deadly consequences for trainers. after watching this documentary, i can never be happy at sea world again, said one. and another post says heartbreaking to watch the whales in captivity. how can anyone think this is okay? but it's not just the internet. >> it's not fair to the animal that they have to be taken out of their natural environment
just so that we can be able to see them and learn about them. >> they're really big fish, kept in small quarters, doesn't seem right. >> reporter: "blackfish" tells the story of dawn brancheault killed in 2010. >> the whale took her under. >> reporter: colin baird believes killer whales should be released in the wild or retired to sea beds. why do you think they're still in captivity? >> well there's dollars to be
5:45am
made, and they're a big draw for these facilities that have them. >> reporter: it's a business? >> it's a business. >> reporter: sea world declined our request for an interview but did provide a statement saying in part, "the film fails to mention sea world's commitment to the safety of its team members and guests, and to the care and welfare of its animals, as demonstrated by the company's continual refinement and improvement to its killer whale facilities' equipment and procedures." sea world brings around $1.5 billion a year and supporters say millions of visitors are not just entertained but educated and inspired. >> people are having less and less daily encounter with animals and so these kinds of exhibits are teaching people about the wild. if people don't know animals, they won't care about them. >> reporter: in a lot of ways, it is kind of double-edged sword for sea world. in other words, we didn't know
5:46am
much about killer whales until sea world came along and made the public fall in love with them. now that the public is in love with them, many believe we can no longer hang onto killer whales. chris and kate in. >> martin, it's a complicated subject. really is, big emotions, the film touched on a lot of key points, the debate will continue. thank you for laying it out for us this morning >> sure. coming up next on "new day," he can sing, can he dance, he can act, he can do a whole lot more than we can. neil patrick harris is here to show us what else can he do. can anyone say mmmm-magic?
